This square is better for drinks rather than food, the smaller square beside it has excellent food options. Pretty square with benches to sit and read a book, visit the Brukenthal museum of art which is located here.

Many pigeons that you can feed them in hand and many restaurants where you can drink or dine any a place to see with many goals and great architecture.

the big square has it all. Cafes restaurants and interesting local crafts. It is always busy and there are excellent places for a coffee or a meal. The buildings are fantastic and you get a real feel for the history

I love Piata Mare in Sibiu! Could spend hours there, just walking around, having a cup of coffee or just taking pictures...

The buildings are beautiful, there are nice cafes and restaurants close by, nice souvenir shops, the Brukenthal Museum is right in the square (most valuable baroque museum in the country), chances are you might stumble upon a festival, fair or concert especially during the summer; the Sfatului Tower is a must see with stairs taking you to the upper levels...

Right in the heart of historical Hermannstadt (the Saxon name for Sibiu - was a Saxon city till 1918). Surrounded by wonderful architecture - keep an eye out for the Sibiu eyes -- the eye shaped windows at the top of the buildings.
